On the 4th of May the Network of Aquaculture Centres in Central and Eastern Europe (NACEE) held an international scientific conference «Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS): Life Science and Technologies». The conference was hosted by the Daugavpils University (Latvia).
Representatives of 10 countries participated in the conference: Belarus, Estonia, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Poland, Russia, Ukraine. 17 presentations were made, covering such topics as new technologies for sustainable aquaculture, commercial outdoor RAS, intensive sturgeon and salmon culture, new species rearing and others.
During the conference a new H2020 TAPAS project was presented to the stakeholders. A poster presentation and flyers gave a basic information about the project, while personal talks and meetings made an important contribution.
